Victoria Day Fireworks by Woodbine Beach 2010

Took my trusty Olympus E-510 along with a tripod down to the foot of Woodbine Beach, basically straight down from where I live, to shot this year’s Victoria Day fireworks display. The one that follows is my favourite, which shows the fireworks as well as their reflection in the waters of the lake:

Tribute Along the Highway of Heroes

A couple of days ago, another Canadian solider was killed in Afghanistan. Was traveling down the Don Valley Parkway with the fellow I carpool with, and managed to take a few pictures from the traveling car of those people paying tribute to the fallen officer.

Here’s the one that came out best:

Red Admiral Butterfly on White Flowers

Love the big, bugged-out eyes on Red Admiral Butterflies. Here’s a shot of one on a cluster of small, white flowers that I ran across:

Bird Bath

It was another hot early-summer day, and I took the dog for a walk down by Woodbine Park. Caught this shot of a Common Grackle cooling down at the edge of the pond in the Park:
